Then you're considered to be At Fault, the logic being that you shouldn't have been there to get into an accident.

Yes. How many points depends on the state in which you live and the EXACT charge against you.

You will probably receive a citation for driving while suspended. If you were not at fault for the accident, the other party involved should have insurance that will cover your loss or damage that resulted in the accident. It is a good thing that you were not at fault in this accident.

If you're driving without a licence, and get into an accident, you will at least share the fault. Since you're not supposed to be there without a licence in the first place.It's generally assumed the accident would not have occurred if you hadn't been there.Added: You will most certainly be cited for whatever your contribution to the accident (if any) may have been (including operating without a license) - however, if the other driver was clearly at fault they are the one who will be cited as the causative factor.

He gets arrested.Added: You could consult with an attorney to determine if you have a suit against the cab drivers employer. If it was an "independent" cab (driver-owned) then you might have a suit against the driver and/or his insurance company.

If, during the precedings, you are picked up your licence then a separate matter will start up.

When this happens, your Insurance company pays for damages. If the accident is your fault, your insurance rates can go up.

your still in trouble since you dont have a License,if you have a mean judge,

Not if it is deemed to be 100% the other drivers fault and they have insurance.

Atlanta is in Georgia, which does not offer true no-fault accident coverage, but insead has no restrictions on law suits.

The same thing that happens if you did not have an Sr22. The at fault parties insurance generally pays for the accident.

As long as your teenager was properly insured and he was not involved in the commission of a crime at the time of the accident, nothing should happen to your teenagers driver license.

Then the court and insurance companies will decide. Get all the information you can, take photos, anything and everything about the incident and reasons why you aren't at fault. If you can, also hire an attorney.

i had a suspend license and i involve with accident and idid not stop

Well Someone will sue you and the insurance will do something about it!

Well, it depends on where you live and what the laws are in that specific region. in canada, that perosn would probably go to jail.

Yes, the driver who was at fault is responsible for the bodily injury for anyone who has been hurt in the accident. The percentage of payment that has to be made would depend upon the percentage of fault for the accident, the prevaling norms of the state or province where the accident ocurred.

A citation or not makes no difference as far as who was at fault though it does make it easier. Also whether or not you have insurance has not effect on who was at fault. Who had the best chance of avoiding the accident is the party most likely at fault.

Fault in the accident will not be affected by the status of your drivers license. Therefore, the person who is at fault will be responsible for damages and his insurance will pay. You will, however be liable for the fine and ticket you will receive for driver without a license. The important point to remember is that if you had been at fault, you would be liable to pay for the repairs of the other persons car as well as for any medical expenses, loss of wages, and permanent injuries.

The other driver should be paying if they were at fault; you may sue them for your deductible in small claims court if they had no insurance.

It will have to be determined if they choose to charge you with manslaughter.

The at-fault driver's insurance will pay for all property and bodily injury damages.

Even if a driver was uninsured, the driver who was at fault is responsible for paying for repairs. Not having insurance does not take away responsibility.
